Thread: icd9 s/p THA

  1. #1

    Question icd9 s/p THA

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can someone tell me what ICD9 you would use for a THA?

  2. #2


    What is the THA? If unknown or not specified throughout the note, I would query?
    Total hip arthroplasty

    If it is transient hemispheric attack (transient ischemic attack) I would use 435.9 for intermittent cerebral ischemia

    Common abbreviation for total hip, so for s/p I would use a V54.x for aftercare following joint replacement with the V code for the joint replacement or the V67.x for follow up with the V code for the joint replacement.

    I would code V54.81 (aftercare following joint replacement) then V43.64 (organ or tissue replaced by other means; hip)
